International Women’s Day in Palestine

Despite the stereotypes, International Women’s Day is a big event in Palestine, and unlike most western countries, it is a public holiday. This year the focus is on Israeli treatment of women prisoners and especially the  plight of Hanna Shalaby, who has now been on hunger strike for more than 3 weeks against Israel’s policy of  administrative detention without charge or trial,
To support Hana, and find out more, Addameer, the Palestinian Prisoner advocacy organisation  has called  a day of action in support of  women political prisoners. Scroll to the bottom of the page to find out what you can do to help.
